BCS invites input on info management certification

The BCS Information Systems Examinations Board is inviting IT professionals to contribute to the development of a foundation certificate in information management.

The BCS Information Systems Examinations Board is inviting IT professionals to contribute to the development of a foundation certificate in information management.

A draft syllabus for the qualification has been reviewed by organisations including the Metropolitan Police, Yell, the Ministry of Defence and IBM, which have participated in a working group to develop information management as a profession.

The proposed qualification aims to have a holistic approach to the subject, based on the model developed by the working group.

Sharm Manwani, associate professor at Henley Management College and former CIO at organisations such as Diageo and Electrolux, presented the draft syllabus for discussion, with the aim of tailoring and agreeing a broad syllabus on which to base the course and develop sample questions.

People who are interested in getting involved in the development of the qualification, or who would like to provide input, should e-mail their name, contact details and a brief overview of why they would be an asset to the development of the certification to Stephen Daniels at: qualsmarketing@hq.bcs.org.uk
